Stop Trump Donor From Grabbing Ownership of Yosemite Away From American People

Target: Donald Trump
Goal: Denounce your donor for grabbing iconic places like “Yosemite National Park” and “Half Dome” away from the American people.

Trump donor Jeremy Jacobs, who is the owner of the billion dollar concessions corporation Delaware North, is leading a charge to wrestle ownership of iconic Yosemite names, such as Curry Village, Ahwahnee Lodge, Wawona Hotel, Half Dome, and even Yosemite National Park itself, away from the American people. This greedy corporate owner and Trump backer is sour that his lucrative contract to sell food and services at the national park was not renewed by the Obama Administration, and has responded with a scorched earth strategy that is attempting to assert ownership over the park’s most iconic names.

Delaware North’s greed does not just effect Yosemite National Park, as they also have government contracts to provide services at other parks, including Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, Olympic, Kings Canyon, Sequoia, and Shenandoah. The idea that a private for-profit company could own and control the names of some of America’s most iconic public places is outrageous and must be opposed.

Trump’s silence to date speaks volumes. Just because a rich billionaire gave Trump a big donation, does not entitle that fat cat to grab the people’s most treasured landmarks. Demand Donald Trump denounce this donor for his greedy attempts to wrestle iconic American names away from the people.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Donald Trump,

Your donor Jeremy Jacobs, who controls Delaware North corporation, is suing the United States in order to wrestle control of iconic place names, like “Half Dome” and even “Yosemite National Park” away from the American people. So far you have remained silent on this attempted heist of the public trust.

Just because someone gives you money, doesn’t mean they should be immune from accountability. Delaware North lost their concession to provide services at Yosemite, and they should have walked away with honor, rather than sour grapes. As a politician who received a large sum of money from Delaware North’s owner, you have a responsibility to speak out.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

    • Julia Edinger says:

      THIS IS ALL FAKE NEWS FROM THE MEDIA !!!

      • Can’t help but agree, but I signed it nonetheless, because if any part true, I definitely don’t want things like this to start happening. With that said, people blaming this on Trump need to realize its his donor trying to do this, not Trump, and yes he can likely stop it, but the point is don’t blame him for someone’s else’s desires!!

        • Kristine, it is not fake news. This is the criminal trump’s MO! This is right up his dirty alley! trump is allowing his mega wealthy donor to usurp the lands! trump is so vile, evil and disgusting.

      • helga jelus says:

        no you are fake

  5. This is a disgrace. That any man/corp. should be able to do this. What the hell is wrong with the leadership in this country. GREED GREED GREED. Sad that these are the examples set for the next generation.

  6. donald trump & his regime HAS NO RIGHT TO GIVE OUR LANDS AWAY TO BIG OIL OR ANY BIG BUSINESS THAT GAVE MONEY TO PUT TRUMP IN POWER!

  7. Donald Trump is not the owner of our country. Where are you Congress?

  8. Heather Brophy says:

    He is a danger to our country and to the world! Flush the entire pathetic, crooked family into their polluted swamp and breath deep. RIP! Make America Proud and Safe Again!

  9. How is this even possible? Impeach!!

  10. The worst thing that happened to the American people was that Trump was elected. He has no moral compass

  11. When will some Americans wake up from their sleep?
    Once taken – gone forever! Corporations and some politicians are not on your side!

  12. Julia Edinger says:

    FAKE NEWS FAKE NEWS FAKE NEWS !!!!
    WAKE UP PEOPLE !!!!!

  13. Peggy Schuetz says:

    Is anyone reading this, how misleading. It’s not the Park itself, it’s the right to sell his products. Just like the fake news, the words are twisted to mislead the public. Shame on you

  14. THEY claim this is fake news.How do they know? With this ego’s past history, he has not shown any empathy with our natural world, which would include Native Americans of course.

  15. Rita Jolly says:

    Can you people read? No wonder fake news gets so much mileage. For starters the business man wants to use a part of a name, not own the land. Wake up and open your eyes. The Economy is booming and people are working again because jobs are returning from overseas. Don’t get your information from the biased news media who hate the President.

    • rita, you cannot possibly be this obtuse. The economy is not booming, again either you are lying hard or merely do not have enough gray matter to use logic. 12% unemployment is not booming Just ask the $hitty walmart jobs and how may people apply for ONE JOB! Stop trolling

  16. Jeannette says:

    This land belongs to the American people and not to some greedy corporate magnate with a nefarious private agenda, who doubtless will hope to find oil on this beautiful park.

  17. trump – a synonym for everything negative
    Big mug and nothing in the brain
    this wonderful country is being sold piece by piece, given away, ravaged, raped, murdered, burned, bled.
    EVERYTHING makes TRUMP – that’s not a FAKE
    bill pay animals, nature and YOU people, not TRUMP.
    but the americans have chosen this insane IQ weak man as president.

  18. We, the American people NEED TO STAND UP to Trump and all the idiots who work with/for him and let them KNOW WE WILL NOT ALLOW THEM TO DESTROY our “HISTORICAL MONUMENTS” for no other reason than MONEY, GREED, AND POWER!! This is BULL SHIT and Trump has DONE NOTHING positive for the American people. Everything he signs off on is what the Republican’s want which equals — greed and money!! Trump just signed off killing baby wolves & bears in Alaska and for what? What will this gain to kill BABY animals except to ENDANGER the species. But, Trump doesn’t give a shit about our Climate or Wildlife. Of course he doesn’t give a shit about the American people who PAYS HIS SALARY of which he still has not divested from all his business’ since he took office. Let’s not forget he has not produced his tax returns either. How can we trust a president like this. He will kill off half the planet if he’s allowed to stay in office.

  19. Tricia KatWrangler Welch says:

    Please READ the petition. Delaware North – don’t like them, wish they could be boycotted out of existence – is looking to own the NAMES of places in Yosemite.

    Except from petition – “The idea that a private for-profit company could own and control the names of some of America’s most iconic public places is outrageous and must be opposed.”

    I certainly oppose DN and all it stands for, but learn to read. You all seem to have this we-hate-Trump hair-trigger reaction. And that is a very dangerous thing. That tells many of us that you’re easily led around by your emotions, and not by anything resembling a coherent thought. Stop being sheeple.

  20. I am so tired of hearing “Trump this and Trump that”! All I can say is vote this man OUT in the next election!!!!! He isn’t leadership material and has no sense of the climate, the USA and the world!
